During the Super Bowl LVI Halftime show, Eminem was in legendary company, sharing the stage with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, and 50 Cent to bring off some of the biggest hip-hop hits of the 90s and 2000s.
The Detroit native came on the stage showing some Air Jordan 3 PEs produced by Jordan Brand in a white, black, and red colorway and a translucent outsole, whilst a special heel logo has a name tag of his alter-ego “Slim Shady”. The left tongue also has a large backward E, reminiscent of his earlier Air Jordan Retro PEs.
May be speaking higher volumes than the shoes and his performance was his choice to take a knee, standing in harmony with Colin Kaepernick’s indication of protest during the 2016 season. Kaepernick’s protest was planned to put light on the persisting police cruelty against the black community, which the NFL finally admitted in 2020 during the Black Lives Matter Movement following the killing of George Floyd.
Anybody noticed @Eminem debut the Air Jordan 3 “Slim Shady” PE for the Super Bowl 56 Halftime Show ?!?!? 🤯🤯🤯

It’s not transparent whether a release of some kind is under the process, but if earlier happenings are any hint, there is a possibility that these could be auctioned off for donation.
